DAASV Riedel Wine Glass Workshop Palo Alto 06/24/11 : The DAASV’s own Riedel Wine Glass Workshop helped alumni experience first-hand the extraordinary way that the shape of glass affects the flavor and perception of wine. The Dartmouth Alumni Association of Silicon Valley and Austrian crystal manufacturer, Riedel — recognized worldwide for designing/engineering finely tuned drinking instruments for every level of wine sophistication — made it possible to experience wine in a truly unique way, and from one of the world’s most entrepreneurial families.  Coming all the way from Austria, Georg Riedel himself conducted this fascinating, hour-long seminar that included the opportunity to savor three different varietals — TJ Rodgers' own Clos de la Tech's Pinot Noir, Arrowood Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon, and Yangarra Estate Shiraz McLarenvale — all in their matching Riedel stemware.

DAASV Eco-Experience With Endangered California Condors 06/12/11 : This was truly a once in a lifetime eco-experience.  DAASV spent a day in Big Sur searching for endangered California condors! Alumni and guests met in Big Sur, then traveled up to a remote, secluded condor sanctuary, high into the Big Sur wilderness on a secured dirt road belonging to, and with special access from, the Bureau of Land Management.  Ventana Wildlife Society’s condor sanctuary is located in a coastal canyon, 2,800 feet above the ocean, and yet, it is only three miles away! Wild California condors, falcons, and hawks perched near the sanctuary and were seen in abundance. Programming included discussion about California condor recovery and reintroduction, conservation ecology, conservation education, and habitat restoration.

DAASV Overnight Adventure on Alcatraz Island 02/10/12 : Dartmouth alumni become members of a small, unofficial club — people who voluntarily spent the night inside a cell on Alcatraz Island.  Yes, the DAASV won the 2012 National Park Service lottery to spend the night at Alcatraz.  We had the entire island to ourselves!  After ferrying over, alumni performed a 1 to 2 hour work project involving cell block maintenance.  After the work project, our Dartmouth group was given the complete historical background by watching a screen presentation of commentaries featuring people who had experienced life on the island.  Long after tourists departed, we were given a given a lengthy tour of the former penitentiary.  We hiked around the island and saw areas closed-off to the general public including the gunrooms, isolation dungeons for solitary confinement, secret tunnels, and passageways. Dartmouth alumni then gathered for dinner in the mess hall, which had doors mounted with tear gas canisters, followed by s’mores over the fire.  At the end of the evening, our group slept in our own 9 by 5 foot cells in Alcatraz’s D Block (aka the isolation unit) with sheet steel floors.

Dartmouth Tour of Decorator Showcase 05/17/12 : Dartmouth alumni and guests gathered for a private tour the showhouse with architect Cary Bernstein ’84 and interior designer Betsy Burham ’84.  The 35th Annual San Francisco Decorator Showcase was the West Coast’s preeminent design event. Dozens of the region’s top interior and landscape designers transformed 2020 Jackson Street (between Laguna and Octavia) into a premiere design showhouse.  Designed by Julius Krafft, 2020 Jackson was built in 1902 by Wells Fargo Bank President Isaias Hellman as a wedding gift for his daughter. However, it served instead as the temporary headquarters of Wells Fargo following the 1906 earthquake and fire. The 11,500 square foot Classical Revival home has four distinct levels with San Francisco Bay views from the formal dining room, large terrace and upper floors.

Clos de la Tech Wine Tasting Party at The Half Moon Bay Wine & Cheese Company 05/19/13 : Dartmouth alumni and guests gathered at The Half Moon Bay Wine & Cheese Company for a tasting party to celebrate the incredible 2008 Clos de la Tech Pinot Noir.  Our hosts were owners and winemakers, Valeta Massey and TJ Rodgers ’70 (Dartmouth Trustee Emeritus), along with other members of the winery team.  We learned about their winery's approach to crafting the New World's Best Pinot Noir.  This extraordinary winery focuses on Pinot Noir and has vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains and Woodside. The 2008 was a great vintage, producing excellent wines bursting with intense flavor and bouquets. The wines have ample yet smooth tannin, which allows them to be enjoyed now or cellared for 15+ years.

Dartmouth vs Stanford Polo Tournament 05/19/13 : Dartmouth families and friends gathered for an afternoon of fast and fun polo as the Big Green faced off against Stanford in our 5th Annual Inter-Collegiate Polo Tournament at the beautiful Menlo Circus Club in Atherton.  Alumni reunited with former classmates, and relaxed on the shady sidelines of the field. Tailgating was strongly encouraged, so many brought a picnic and toasted Dartmouth's 8-6 victory! Noted equestrian, and equine vet, Ashley McCaughan DVM '04 was on hand to provide an introductory “Polo 101” talk for those new to the sport.  Alumni stepped out onto the field at halftime for the traditional “divot stomp”, and afterwards took the opportunity to meet the players and their ponies.  David Goldfarb, from Clos de la Tech Winery, was on hand providing all attendees with a tasting of their delicious Pinots—a definite highlight of the afternoon's festivities.
